Around 21 weeks!

April 19, Matt and I left our apt bright and early (4:40 a.m. to be exact) for KCI. From KCI we flew into Denver, then to Sacramento. We literally walked on the tarmac and boarded this tiny airplane. The plane had one column of one seats and on the other column two seats. I thought I was going to be sick! We flew from Sacramento to San Fransisco and on to L.A. From L.A. we FINALLY made it to Kahului airport. We figured our total travel time was 15 hours not including time change. Matt's uncle, aunt, and cousins live in Maui. That was one condition Matt had before the baby, we had to take a real vacation. We were planning on staying with his family, however they are in the process of remodeling and set us up with a sweet house. The owners only use it a month out of the year. First thing we did was buy the main essentials at the grocery store. Milk was around five bucks and fruit was outrageous. I guess you pay a high cost for living in paradise. The first day we relaxed at the beach. We applied sunscreen but thought we would tan on our legs, arms, chest, etc. Needless to say we were lobsters by the end of the day. However it was just nice to relax. By the end of the trip, I finished two chapter books, Hunger Games and a Nicholas Sparks book (something close to heaven). We also went snorkeling and saw lots of beautiful fish. We took a boat by the name of Alii Nui to Molokini island. It's a sunken volcano. We also saw eels. The ship provided free alcohol drinks all around. One guy came up to us and was concerned that we weren't having a good time, I'm guessing it was because we weren't getting a buzz. We also saw a mamma whale with her baby on the way back. We decided to rent snorkeling gear and went snorkeling at White Rock beach. Matt and I were just swimming along when Matt spotted a good size turtle! We followed it as long as we could before we lost it. The turtle got to close to the beach and the sand made it to hard to see.
